College Physics, 9th Edition
with Enhanced WebAssign

Fall 2012
Dr. Tom Kirkman

## Home work will be assigned via WebAssign.net. Generally homework is due

before midnight on the following lecture day. Late homework will be assessed a
15% penalty. While the web promises global connections, it often promotes
isolation. Consider avoiding web-induced isolation by forming a problem solving
group. (Everybody's problems will be slightly different, but the algebra and
thought required to solve the problems will be the same.) Or just work the
homework with classmates in our Physics Library PEngel 104; I'll then be near
by when you have questions. Note that assigned homework should just be the
start to developing your problem solving skills: work extra odd problems and
check the answer in the back of the textbook!
To use WebAssign for homework you will need the access code you
purchased with your textbook to self-register for your course section.
